Lily Munster is dead

Yvonne De Carlo, the beautiful star who played Moses' wife in "The Ten Commandments" but achieved her greatest popularity on TV's slapstick comedy "The Munsters," has died. She was 84. She played Lily Munster in the 1964-1966 horror-movie spoof "The Munsters."

Yvonne was one of the last performers I know of who who worked with my aunt Jeanne Arnold, who has been dead for years. Jeanne was one of the stars of Munsters Go Home. She also was on Bewitched, The Guiding Light (for four years), The Monkees, and I Spy.

When I was in high school, it wasn't uncommon to see Aunt Jeanne on a commercial weighing paper towels, or singing about her Playtex bra.
